Iconic suspension lamp pays tribute to Eiffel

The design of this big pendant lamp references and pays tribute to the most well known and iconic structure in the world: the Eiffeltower.

To understand where the lamp is made of : it’s necessary to go closer and look at it with more caution.

The detailed structure creates a stunning shadow play. The design is also a comment on mass-production, over-production and consuming. The design of the Eiffel tower is enormously overproduced. , used in souvenirs, prints, posters, commercials, coffee-mugs etc. It’s iconic shape is grown larger than the tower itself. Using mass-produced souvenirs as a building-block: I created a new shape and design.

Result is a very expressive, dynamic and striking looking lamp , with layers of humor and poetry hidden in the design.

“Colosseum” wants to express and enhance the positive connotation of the shape it is constructed from.
